Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Happiness Is A Warm 70 Darkstar (repeat of earlier reference, my short term memory is getting shorter and shorter)

Sad that there are so few choice AUD's from the early days? Sad that you can't find an exceptional version of Darkstar>Attics>Darkstar>Sugar Mag>Darkstar>Stephen? Well, I was too until I stumbled on this a couple of weeks ago. I may have mentioned it earlier, but with the recent recurrence of negative energy around here, I needed something to take me away and this fit the bill on many, many different levels. If, like me, you just want to let yourself go and float around the room for awhile, just press play.

EDIT: This show was referenced by He Live earlier in the month, my bad, but it can't hurt to toss it out again.

it's funny to think that those old capitol theater tapes were the first " good " sounding tapes of the day. taping was in it's infancy and i'm glad some folks like marty weinberg had the sense and the stones to go in and tape those shows. i'm grateful.

And I'm also glad there was a security guard named Ken Lee and his wife Judy recording the shows at the Capitol Theatre in 1970. They made some of the most enjoyable audience recordings of some of the mightiest Grateful Dead concerts ever played. The 6/24/70, 3/21/70 and 11/5-11/8/70 Capitol Theatre recordings would have never been heard again if not for them. Even if SBDs of these shows surfaced someday I will always treasure the wonderful audiece recordings made at this particular venue. They also recorded other bands that year such as Janis Joplin, Traffic and Jethro Tull and all of them are worth seeking out.
All Dark Star lovers should check out the 6/24/70, 11/5/70 and 11/8/70 Dark Stars recorded at that venue.

you are TOTALLY correct about 70-06-24!!!

dark star->attics->dark star->sugar magnolia->dark star->st stephen->china cat->I know you rider

really a nice listen...

looking forward to Nov 05->8th with nrps, though I might stick with 06-24 for at least tonight. I really enjoy the second section of dark star; I don't think I will be able to get it out of my head for some time. One of those positive earworms.

Speaking of NRPS, my buddy Lance puts on a series of shows in Petaluma (yes, a shameless plug for him) and Mr. Nelson will be playing his next shindig:

Ah, it does my heart good to see you venture into the Golden Era I so often inhabit in relative isolation (well, okay, I run into Arb, CLIFF, HeLives and a few others here regularly).

Serious question: not paying attention lately; is the ruckus about Tito et al posting links to their own or to other sites that have downloads available? Or just to "big sites" that do such things? IE, would someone be crossing the line by posting to their little "priviate" site for a download?

Or am I missing what's amiss altogether?

Thanks--have to get my news from someone, and you are generally an above board source.

Generally? I think that I'd be lucky to get "every now and then".

As for the links issue, my guess, and it's only a guess, is that in an attempt to keep this site up and running in terms of offering free and unfettered access to AUD recordings, they want to keep all "unauthorized" sources of recorded matieral as far from this place as possible. Like others have said, if an individual wants to make such material available, there are many other avenues to do so. I for one vote for erring on the side of caution. We all remember the tragic day SBD were removed from this wonderful place and we should do everything we can to ensure that Rhino et al don't decide that even the AUDs are their property and yank them too.

But, that's just me.

Yeah, I was being kind...now that I think of it, it was only one time, and the biased, skewed viewpoint only resonated since it was the same narrowminded, absolutist drivel that I endorse...

How can you not appreciate that? Well done.

it was skydawg, brought it up.....

do you have the TAPING COMPENDIUMS? it is nice to have a big two or three volume set next to the commode -- it's like the precedent to these forum pages and the like -- the DEAD SEE SCROLLS perhaps, where things like the June 24, 1970 show are illuminated long ago by those who have previously tread these grounds, in the analog days even...

Well played, sir.

I like the idea of a DEAD SEE SCROLLS. Or even a search capability here where you could input a show date and you'd get a list of all the initial posts the specifically referenced the show.

Or maybe not. Perhaps time on the commode should be left as it is: a deeply personal moment where even the Dead should not be included.
